As for the original shot, it's still Disney. If they wanted more background detail, they could have afforded it. Making the background empty was a deliberate artistic choice.

I think you're right in this case. But actually the image of Disney being willing to shell out unlimited funds on every project is not always the case, especially when Aladdin came out.

Aladdin came out at a time when Disney was still struggling back from the verge of bankruptcy. They almost went under due to a lackluster string of films during the 70s and 80s. The Little Mermaid had been their first hit in ages and, while praying that Aladdin was going to continue that trend, they weren't going to risk it all on the project.

Much of the CGI used during the magic carpet escape from the Cave Of Wonders were placeholders (and it shows) but they had already run out of budget and were forced to leave them as is. Luckily the audience of the time was still wowed by CGI in animated films and didn't notice too much how truly shoddy it was.

For the same budget reasons the final scene had to be cut. Remember how the movie starts with the travelling peddler who is our narrator? And he is also voiced by Robin Williams? It always seemed odd to me that the narrator never returns at the film's end to bring us back out of the story.

Well, he was supposed to. And the scene would have revealed him to actually be the Genie who had disguised himself as a human to travel the world after being set free. This is also why the peddler has the now non-magic lamp in his possession.

But all the money was gone so they, sadly, had to cut this scene which I think would have made Aladdin even more of a masterpiece of animation than it already is.

@Cyrus: WOW! You wrote a walkthrough for a game you never even produced? I can't decide if this is kinda brillant or absolutely crazy! Soooo much work! All you have to do now is ...the rest. But nevertheless: WOW!

@All: Did some of you guys ever do this? Anyone? Hello? 8-0

I wrote a walkthrough for the game I'm working on right now, which is still far from being finished. It's way shorter than Cyrus' game though and I only wrote down the necessary actions. Nevertheless, it really helps to get things right, avoid logical mistakes and think about certain situations, plot elements, dialogs..

I'm not sure if the number makes a difference at this point or not. Unless the number is less than 4.
